One of the most challenging shoes to build for Beijing, the Nike Romaleos is a lightweight, flexible workhorse that can withstand the unique punishment that weightlifters put on their footwear. In a world championship event where a 300-pound man might lift 700 pounds, shoes play a critical role in an athlete’s performance and safety. The most revolutionary innovation in the Nike Romaleos weightlifting shoe is Nike’s exclusive “Power Bridge,” a contoured TPU heel wedge designed to support the foot and bear as much weight as a man can lift, without any compression or give. This technology provides a lightweight alternative to the wooden heel wedge that competitors have been using since the 1960s. The Power Bridge is also a technical advancement because, unlike a flat wood shim, it is contoured to cup the heel, providing stability and comfort under stress. The honeycomb-like system of trusses and bridges in the midsole has been engineered for ultimate strength, helping to ensure that an athlete’s weight stays forward during the intense jerking and lifting motion of competition. A first in Nike footwear design, heel heights have been graded to different elevations for the varying sizes and weight classes of Olympic athletes. This unique system is well-protected by a flat rubber outsole specially designed to minimize wear in the heel.
The upper is constructed from durable synthetic materials that are ultra-supportive with integrated lacing and two large hook and loop fasteners that keep the foot locked in place. Inside, elastic has been added to the top of the shoe to flex with the tendons of the foot during the snapping “triple extension” movement of clean and jerk lifting. The Nike Romaleos comes with two different sockliners: a softer insert for training and a harder version for competition, when athletes benefit most from zero deflection as power is transferred through the foot.

The best OLY shoeReview by ACW
I purchased these Nikes and let me tell you it they are steps above. The quality of this shoe is the BEST by far. The fit is true to your Nike Running shoes and they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I would highly recommend you spend the extra money and go with the Nike Romaleos!

As for the Romaleo Volt, I have waited months for these to go on sale and as quickly as they were added my size sold out. I typically wear an 8 in Womens and ended up ordering a 5.5 in Men's. These actually fit perfect, even a little big.
As for the shoe, I absolutely love it. I have the Reebok OLY's and Romaleo's are much firmer and more stable. <3 them and the Volt absolutely ROCKS! You cannot go wrong with these shoes.
Absolutely LOVE these shoesReview by E Grullon
Worth the investment! No questions about it!!Review by EZ
These shoes are truly amazing. Completely flat is right. When you walk out, your feet are stuck, ready for that squat to come. Everything about this shoe improves your technique. Bottom line, I love these shoes...
